The 9th Circuit's transgender transgression

Aside from the prospect of getting to choose a replacement for octogenarian liberal Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, furthering a much-needed makeover of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals might well be the single most compelling reason to reelect President Trump in November.

Let Massachusetts thrive

The facts and data have not justified Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker's tyrannical strangulation of the Massachusetts economy. And the attitude that said strangulation can be dragged out for months is recklessly callous.

Don't let Obama, Biden skate

Attorney General William Barr's announced decision not to initiate investigations of Joe Biden and Barack Obama for their parts in the Flynn matter is justice denied to the American people. Everyone who was at the now-infamous Oval Office meeting of Jan. 5, 2017, (President Obama, Vice President Biden, Susan Rice, James Comey, John Brennan and Sally Yates) could be incriminated for unmasking and leaking Flynn's name. Both Mr. Biden and Mr. Obama should be subject to investigation for possible illegal actions, most prominently Mr. Biden, who unmasked Flynn on President Trump's Inauguration Day.

SpaceX brings renewed expectations to crewed space exploration

Americans were not meant to sit on their hands with their feet up on the coffee table. Our forebears of more than 10 generations took leaps of faith -- some by ship, some by foot and some by airplane -- all to light upon a new land where they could chase their wildest dreams. A new chapter in the story of the nation's journey begins Wednesday when a fresh generation of spacecraft, labeled "Made in America," lifts off from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. New adventures and opportunities await, somewhere out there.

Azerbaijan tramples human rights

I was born in Azerbaijan as member of the Armenian minority. Mr. Suleymanov does not write about Azerbaijan as we both know it, because he is a mouthpiece for a dictator ("Pandemic highlights the protracted Azerbaijan-Armenia conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh region," Web, May 19).

Israel won't be bullied

Israel will not be annexing the "occupied West Bank" ("Israel's daunting decision on drawing permanent borders," Web, May 19). The Israeli government will be formally delineating its borders in the disputed areas of Judea and Samaria.
